Trip Description

Hop onboard in the beautiful beach town of Port Elgin. Learn the ropes and find your sea legs as Pathfinder and Playfair sail north towards the our summer cruising grounds of Georgian Bay. Sail around the top of the Bruce Peninsula, through the famous Flowerpot Islands, and explore the bays and inlets of Manitoulin Island before ending in the bustling tourist town of Tobermory. Experience the challenge of learning to sail a tall ship, and then kick back to enjoy swimming and campfires in the beautiful remote areas you have sailed to.


Join us as a Trainee 

As a Trainee, no previous experience is required- the youth officers of TS Playfair will teach you everything you need to know.

There are three simple requirements to join summer youth courses:

  • Must be 13 to 18 years of age.
  • Must be comfortable in and around the water.
  • Must be ready for adventure.


Please note the following:

Cost is per trainee in Canadian dollars ($CAD) and does not include HST. A $300 booking deposit is required at registration.

Course itineraries are approximate and subject to change according to schedule and weather conditions.

For all voyages, participants can either be dropped at the Hamilton office on the day of departure for a shuttle to the vessel or can be dropped directly at the departure port no later than 1pm. The fee to take the shuttle is $35 each way, and can be added during the booking process.

Brigs is committed to ensuring that all youth have equitable access to our sail training programs through our Pathfinder Access Fund. If you require financial assistance, please let us know when you register.
